Sometimes folks find commonalities in unexpected places. That’s why talking to people pays great dividends. No, I didn’t strike up a conversation with the spitting guy from the bus. I just had to ponder that thought for awhile. What if I had started talking to the spitting guy? What’s the worst that could have happened? His language was pretty ripe, even for a son of a logger.
